Wilson, Tim 1cc

Timothy Wayne Wilson, 50, of Alta Vista, KS, passed away unexpectedly on Monday, July 4, 2016. Tim was born May 24, 1966, to William Leroy and Anna Lou (McCullough) Wilson in Springfield.

Tim was a wonderful husband, father, brother, son, grandfather and friend to many people. He was a Kansas State University graduate with a Bachelors Degree in Agriculture. He had worked for the Kansas Dept. of Health & Environment for the last 10 years. He was an avid outdoorsman, who was always up for a night time fishing trip. He loved his family dearly and was the light of his granddaughters’ lives.

Tim was married to his love, Regina, for 29 years. They were married Feb. 13, 1987, and were blessed with one daughter, Danielle.

Being an avid outdoorsman, he dabbled in many different things, from waking early for a long walk through an open pasture looking for that covey of pheasants, to teaching his daughter the art of patience waiting for that big buck or the fish to, finally, take the bait. His best days were spent with family outside doing something.

Tim was such an easy person to befriend and love. He could make friends anywhere with anyone, and he was the type of friend all can only hope to be. He was always willing to lend a helping hand and would go out of his way to do so. He was truly a wonderful man.

His arms and heart were always open for his family and the many friends he considered family. He always quoted Augustus McCrae from “Lonesome Dove”, “It’s not about where you die, it’s about where you live.”

Tim was preceded in death by his father, William Leroy Wilson; his father-in-law and mother-in-law, Leroy and Rosalie Rector; his brothers, William Michael Wilson and Russell Lee Wilson; and a nephew, Jeremy Austin Wilson.

He is survived by his wife, Regina Wilson of Alta Vista, KS; daughter, Danielle Wilson of Alma, KS; two granddaughters, Baylen Adams and Aurora Adams of Alma, KS; mother, Ann Wilson of Cassville; brother, Dave Wilson and wife, Norma, of Reeds Springs; sister, Linda Wilson, of Neosho; brother, Jim Wilson, and wife. Kathy, of Springdale, AR; brother-in-law, Ron Rector, and wife, Margaret, of El Dorado Springs; and numerous nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.

Words hardly describe the depth of his loss, nor the love he had for his family. He is missed and loved beyond all measure.

Services were held on Friday, July 8, in Bland-Hackleman Funeral Home with Bro. Tim Blankenship and Bro. Everett Smith officiating. Burial followed in Hazel Dell Cemetery under the direction of Bland-Hackleman Funeral Home.

Pallbearers were Jim Wilson, Dave Wilson, Lance Wilson, William Wilson, John Thompson and Steve Blankenship. Honorary pallbearers were Ron Rector, Roger Wilson, Larry Cumpton, Jason Rector and Mark Messbarger.
